Blue skys in Boscombe

Some people find an internet cafe whilst abroad, often from lovely mysterious places, me, well, I found one in Boscombe.

I’ve taken piccies, but I have no idea how to download them in an internet cafe and I am afraid I’ll do something silly and lose them from my camera.

The weather here is lovely, I walked, played and knitted for three hours on the beach today, I walked to Bournemouth and back which my husband assures me to my rented flat will be a four mile hike. So, the fitness levels are on the up.

I have finished my Seafoam scarf, am slowly knitting my My so called Scarf and have a learning curve/love/hate/stop/start, with extra research relationship with my secret project. Please send knitting blessings as along with this, it looks very probable that I may run out of wool!!

Things I have learnt whilst enjoying my holiday.

If you wind a skein of wool with a golden retriever in the room there will still be bits of fur attached to it, even if you are knitting said wool in a dog free zone, aka the holiday flat.

Trying to cook mashed potato for one is not very successful. Somehow you need a certain ratio of spud to pan.

There is one, one, knitting shop I have found in Christchurch, nothing in Boscombe unless you count the post office that sells a reasonable amount of acrylic. Of the six shops that I had printed out to find, hubby and I found one, it looks like the others have closed. Which made me realise just how blessed we are.

I get to bed earlier, as I do not have the wonderous internet to distract me.

I really, really do enjoy my own company.

Well, what have I been doing apart from knitting. I’ve been to museums and art exhibitions, beaches, restaurants, cafes, antiquing, walked lots and still have lots on my to do list.

See you when I get back!
